Our tour guide, Lucia, was very knowledgeable, energetic, with a good personality. One issue we had on the tour was that it was difficult to hear - there was static on the headsets. It was also extremely crowded, which could have contributed to the problem. Skip the line is definitely worth it. There is so much to see in the Vatican, that even seeing the highlights was rushed. Lucia did a very good job considering the time limitation of the tour and the crowds. Her English is good, and she has a lot of knowledge and details. She is also a very pleasant person.
Guide was the worst.

I took this tour last year with a private guide and wish I would have done that again. Our tour guide had such a thick accent we could only catch about every third word. And she was not personable at all she wasn’t even making eye contact with anybody. As she was speaking it felt as if she was just reading it out of an enCyclopedia. Completely and totally boring and the Vatican was so crowded that she was rushing us through. We kept losing her and then because we were too far away the radio Would cut out. Then to top it off St. Peter’s basilica closed for a special event at 1p so we didn’t even get to see it! SO many of us were angry about that. I booked this tour over 5 months ago and had I known it was only going to be open in the morning I would have changed my pick up time from the pier and come earlier. I think it stinks that they only let us know WHEN we were there leaving us no choice.
Thank you Franco.

Franco was our guide for the 7:30 am Vatican tour. He demonstrated his knowledge of history and ability to navigate crowds and use down time to the best advantage. Three hour tour was just right for us. Thank you Franco.
Great Tour - Skip the Line a Must Do
, Sep 2018
Great tour! Was very impressed by our guide and all we saw and learned about the beautiful Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's. It's terrible, but I cannot remember our guides name. I liked the way she started the tour by explaining the Sistine Chapel prior to entering the chapel. The entire tour was amazing!
